"... I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception … " — Genesis 3 : 16
"Everything negative — pressure, challenges — is all an opportunity for me to rise." — Kobe Bryant
In my class this week, I came to understand on a deeper level the need for challenges and sufferings. As human beings, we tend to put our focus on "I" but not others. When challenges come, I often think about how I am going to overcome, but rarely think about the purpose behind. God definitely sets us up with many different trials. However, He is teaching each of us how to catch a fish. Sometimes, we might drop the fish, we might spend whole day in vain, we might catch a fish we don’t like, and we might be too lazy to catch a fish. When a trial comes, He may tries to help us pick up the fish again, He may tries to help us catch a fish, He may tries to help us enjoy the fish we have, and He may tries to help us not being lazy. Each trial we go through was taylored for us. Each challenge refines us and lifts us to level where we are supposed to be.
Questions and doubts are similar but different. They both have a question mark in your mind, but they are pointing toward opposite directions. Questions help us understand how things work, but doubts tempt us to deny how things work. We should question about things but not doubt about things.
I believe that with all sufferings, eventually, I will be able to sit and enjoy the view like that girl above. Focus on what is coming, and why don’t I just enjoy the process of refining? Image grinding and farming for a while, and finally I get a +9 boot, isn’t this exciting?
